Make an Arduino-Controlled Robot, $25

Michael Margolis’ book was designed to introduce tech-savvy makers to the worlds of Arduino, robotics, and experimenting with sensors. While the book was designed in concert with the Make: Rovera robots, it can also be used separately with your existing robot platform or you can build or buy your own. The book beautiful illustrates every step of the robot build process (for both a two-wheeled and four-wheeled robot), with full-color photos and illustrations, and clear instructions. Michael is the author of the best-selling Arduino Cookbook and this book makes a worthy companion to that meaty tome.
